In case you wondered

My blood-tests came back all ok

I may need iron in the future but not yet.

The doctor said give it a couple of weeks with what he gave me and the cream Muzz gave me (although I wont continue to use that, that long if I dont have to) and see how it goes.  He said its early days.  He was talking about the skin test which I didnt have.  He said if it had come back positive, what would could be done,  would I have had injections every week?   I said “well yes if it stops the scratching”

He said its early days.  Which is good cause I have scratched a little bit today.  I think I have to remind myself this is a life long (nearly) habit.  I wont stop over night.

    At least you’re making progress. There are some prescription anti-itching meds if those don’t work for you. You’ll have to ask your Dr. about them if you find those aren’t effective enough.

    I’m just so excited that you’ve made so much progress!!! 🙂

    Praying that you find relief and healing. I’m glad you’re taking steps to feel better, Jen.

    Jen, you only scratched a little bit today??? YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m glad the cream is helping you. Reading your posts keeps making me itchy, because I have poison ivy (still). I think I even have it on my scalp now! *sigh*

    I’m also VERY glad your doctor is taking this seriously and trying to help you.

    And I’m proud of you for being honest about this and not giving up! YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh! And before I forget, i need you to e-mail me your addy (real mail addy) so I can send you your quiz prize! :o)

    Lord, I ask you to give Jen comfort and peace and wipe away her urge to scratch. Keep reminding her that she is your daughter of grace and deserves to be treated (by self!) as such. Help her to surrender to you totally, that she may receive the fullest extent of your grace and and abounding love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
